    Three bids were submitted to for the SFNO property, which has sat vacant since Hurricane Katrina: http://neworleanscitybusiness.com/b...three-offers-for-former-six-flags-theme-park/

    The property remains mostly intact, with four roller coasters, a log flume, splash boat ride, sky coaster, and other attractions still remaining.

    The three bids:
    1. $3.26M by TPC-NOLA Inc., including plans for a "Jazzland" theme park and water park, valued at $50M.
    2. $4.55M in cash by Frank Scurlock, including a "Festival Theme Park" valued at $120M. Also includes large shopping mall.
    3. $5.55M by 30/90 Management, with unclear development plans.

    As a fun aside, you can also find some Abandoned SFNO videos across Youtube:

    It's great that it looks like it might finally reopen - although, I wouldn't know what the state of the coasters and rides are in at this point?

    Probably pretty easy to answer this actually. They're :emoji_zipper_mouth:ed.

    I would imagine almost everything major would be scrapped, or at least have to have full renovations from the ground up. A lick of paint and a bit of lube on the bearings it's going to do it.

    The people behind the Jazzland project seemed to be really serious about the whole deal and have already posted some plans in their facebook page. Gravity Group and Vekoma have inspected Mega Zeph and Jester respectively and they are deemed to be restorable. The mouse coaster and Boomerang would seem to be heading to a scrapyard and would be replaced by a new Mouse and suspended coaster...
